The Malone University School of Education will be hosting students from select fourth grade classrooms from local school systems. Students participating in the challenge are taking part in a common-core based curriculum that allows them to think about real-world problems that they encounter and come up with solutions to those problems.
On the day of the event, student teams will be matched with Malone University students and middle school volunteers to build and present their ideas as well as participate in a number of engineering challenge stations involving up-cycled and recycled materials.
Malone University is a Christian university for the arts, sciences and professions in the liberal arts tradition, affiliated with the Evangelical Friends Church.
Do what you can to help
Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is a worldwide celebration of child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. In the month of September, kids are challenged to create and build using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on October 5th, 2013 (the anniversary of the flash mob that came out to make Caine’s day in the short film) communities all around the world will come together and play!
